in common. >> jennifer: five days until the election! and 72 hours since super storm sandy barreled head-long into the jersey shore. since then very serious stuff. whole neighborhoods like breezy point, queens, have been burned to the ground. houses have tumbled into the ocean. 87 people have died. seven million have lost power. and there are estimates that the storm could cost $50 billion. whole stretches of new york subway system are paralyzed. and that's forced thousands of commuters into their cars and in search of fuel. unfortunately, the majority of gas stations in new jersey are shut down and about 75% of them because they have no gas no power or they're out of both. new york senator chuck schumer assured frustrated citizens the gas crisis should end shortly but tensions still ran high. this is one scene outside of one of the few open stations in brooklyn.

, after sandy, when you talk about the jersey shore or a lot of other places, you can fairly say you didn't rebuild that. the federal government will re rebuild that. will the republicans say hey i don't want the money? dowill he say i don't want the federal help? hell no. do you remember when he ran this against obama. >> if you have a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. >> my father's hands didn't build this company. my hands didn't build this company? through hard work we built this business. why are you demonizing us. we need someone who believes in america. >> cenk: you see, that was the whole point. no one was demonizing anybody. president obama was saying we work together to build things, and sometimes to rebuild things. and that is in fact exactly what happens after storms. after hurricane katrina it was $113 billion of federal money that went down there to rebuild that area. there is a ratio that the government spends arch these disasters. it's 75% after the state and local governments have spent 25%. that's a disaster aid formula that has been around
infrastructure. there is great concern since hurricane sandy the impact of global warming and what will be coming down the pike if we do not transform our energy system. they want us to be aggressive in that area. i think there is a lot of concern about education and the fact that there millions of young people paying to go to college and they want government to be there as well to make sure we have the best-educated worse forceworkforce in the world in this economy. what the right wing has been successful about is to suggest that their extreme ideology is what america wants. it doesn't. i think this is true in 50 states in this country. it makes sense to give huge task breaks to millionaires and billionaires who are already doing well, and then to cut back on work families? to answer your question, i think the american people understand especially amidst this recession that government is there to protect us and we all maintain a minimummal standard of living. >> the president led us back from this great recession the cataclysm of 2008 and then hurricane sandy the republicans whined and said it d

in new york state. % why? because of hurricane sandy and the presinks they had to use like paper ballots and they haven't been able to count them all. parts of new jersey most of those uncounted votes are up in the -- up in the northeast. so, as they are counting these votes t the president's total gets up and up and up. right now the count is the president has 65,000,069,89,000 romney 60,570. the president has a 5 million vent margin. that puts the president. still a million and a half to go at 50.9% of the vote. he will become in fact you have to say it's 51%. definitely 51%. that makes president obama only the second president in history to win two terms with more than 51% of the vote. the only other president who did that was dwight eisenhower in 52 and '56. >> that's an incredible statistic. >> that really is. >> so it was a historic win for obama, historicwin. president obama beat mitt romney by more votes than george bush beat john kerry and we know that was a blowout. people think of that as a blow out. this was a bigger blowout. >> it al

it was one of the most shameful facts i've ever seen on fox news. the night after sandy literally drowned the new york city metropolitan area, sean hannity appeared on fox news that night and talked about bengahzi for an hour. he had no interest in the fact that fox's hometown of new york city had been decimated by the storm. >> jennifer: i thought they blamed the storm on the president, too, didn't they? >> yes exactly. everything is a chance to talk about benghazi, and certainly petraeus is another example. >> jennifer: let's just jump to the election because everybody has been talking about this today. leading up to the election, fox news has been pushing either romney was going to win and they were still debating the results. turns oh out the president wins the popular vote, not to mention the electoral landslide. he won the popular vote, and do you think that they realized that they're actually living in a fact-free bubble? they're crafting this tale and they actually buy into it? >> well, that's what has sparked this backlash. a lot of viewers, not just of fox news but rush limbaugh
. unfortunately storms like hurricane sandy drive home the impact of climate change. has the president begun the process of explaining to the public why we need to act now and then giving us the range of options that are available to us? >> i think the opportunity is in front of him. he has got a pulpit. no one else has. he is the president. he can raise the issue of climate change to a level where demands a public discussion. he can raise the issue to a level where it becomes a political issue in this country. and that, you know, the next -- in two years is another election. it would be wonderful to have environment, climate change and being one of the issues that all candidates have to deal with. at this point, it is an ignored issue. when you ignore an issue sandy happens, huge amount of heat in the southwest that's never happened before is going to occur in this summer and those are consequences of not dealing with the issue. i think it is fundamentally at a human level, at a species. >> eliot:, a profound issue that we
